So, I just got hit with a headache. OW! I gave the blanket to the new mommie to be, well, she is not actually a NEW mommie, this is her third, but it is her first GIRL! She said she loved it, likes how soft it is, had to give me a hug. She also liked the baby feet on the bag and the card.

I took a few minutes to pop over to WW to check my threads. I just pasted ♪♥♫♥ >^..^< on them so tonight I can find them and type something. Laurie Lee sent an e-mail to Pam saying she has to leave the thread. I remember when I did that, then I came back, now the thread is no longer there. I am sure that will not happen to BT and BTF. There are too many people that post to it for it to just fade to black.

There was another thread that I used to post to that is no longer there. I can't believe that at one time I posted to 7-10 threads. One thread now only has like 3 regular posters. Every once in a while someone new posts there, but they don't come back.

My weight was up this morning, but my pants seem to be fitting better. So that is an NSV.

Window Pane Baby Blanket


Here is the blanket, I posted on the BT thread that it was here and have gotten several compliments on it. I am going to start a blog with all my crafts on it. I just have to figure out how to do it!

Window Pane Blanket

Just finished this book, will come back to comment on it.

O.K. I put my laundry in and did stuff and now I have no time to comment on this book. But I will, but now I have to post pictures of the baby blanket I just finished.

I really enjoyed this book. What I have discovered about Peter Robinson, is even though the books are a series, they are not all the same. For instance in this book, you learn about DC Susan Gay, who up to this point has just been mentioned, and that by other characters, you don’t really see her. She is very smart but very insecure for lack of a better word. She is always questioning herself, and worried that others are looking at her critically and reporting on her to her superiors. One of those people who blames themselves when things go wrong, or if they make a mistake, feel they shouldn’t have made it, even if it was their inexperience that caused it. Considering she is a female in a male dominated profession it is very understandable and Peter Robinson makes it very believable.

Getting ready for bed

I was washing my face, or brushing my teeth, and thought of something I wanted to post here, not only do I not remember it now, I forgot it before I left the bathroom. I was standing there looking at myself in the mirror saying, what was it? What was I going to say? It is completely gone.

Tonight I did just the AMT. But I wore my new skort, I like it for exercising, very comfortable. Need to let my aching muscles heal. I have been getting all kinds of advise for my muscles. A lady at the gym said to eat a banana beforehand, the potassium helps. My boss said to get Whey Protein Powder and mix it in water, 20 grams of protein, because if I am cutting calories I am probably not getting enough protein. I have not done either, and I don’t think I will have time to get any WPP before I go to work out tomorrow. Tomorrow I am trying to do 15 to 20 minutes on the elliptical and the whole Nautilus circuit.

Well, I took a picture of the blanket I knitted, it is in the camera, I wrapped the blanket in pink tissue paper then white paper with a bunch of cute saying on it, and stuck it in a gift bag, the bag is kind of yellow. Too much pink gives me a rash. I can’t decide if I am going to get a card. I know I should, I am just getting a little short on cash right now.

After the gym I went to Kohls. I got three tops, one brown cotton skirt (short) and another skort for working out. It was cheaper there than at Target, it was 50% off. I think I will wear it tomorrow.
